DTBird and DTBat start operating in The Netherlands
First DTBirdV8 unit and DTBatD3 unit have started operating in Windpark Krammer, located in Zeeland, The Netherlands. Additional units will be installed during the wind farm construction until 2019. These are the first DTBird&DTBat units installed in concrete towers.

DTBirdV4D8 model is included in LIFE project

The model DTBirdV4D8 has been installed in the Wind Farm Terna, in Thrace (Greece) under the project LIFE12 BIO/GR/000554. This project aims to demonstrate the practical application of post-construction assessment and post-construction mitigation. DTBird was already participating in the LIFE project with the model DTBirdV4D4 that started operating at the Wind Farm and the Park of Energy Awareness (PENA) of CRES at Keratea (Greece) at the beginning of 2016.

Two DTBirdV4D8 units are operating with Collision Avoidance module D8 (8 speakers distributed at 2 heights, below the lower point reached by the blades and below the nacelle). Each unit has two settings (sound activated/muted) which switch from one to the other every week. Every week, one unit has the sound activated while the other is muted.

The wind farm is located in Castilla y León (Spain) and the most frecuent species detected in the vicinity of the wind turbines are: Gyps fulvus, Milvus milvus, Buteo buteo and Falco ssp.

The collected data will be used for the species specific evaluation of the DTBird Collision Avoidance module.

DTBird finishes first phase of a research program to improve the Collision Avoidance module

DTBird in cooperation with the Spanish Wildlife Recovery Center (GREFA) and the Animal Medicine and Veterinary Surgery Faculty of the Complutense (Spanish University) has tested the hearing of the following bird species: Aquila chrysaetosFalco naumanniGyps fulvus and Milvus milvus.

The Audiogram Plots of these species will be used to create new species-specific collision avoidance sounds and to adjust the design of speaker's location and sound levels emitted, customized for both target species and wind turbine dimensions. The bird's hearing research is still open to add more species and individuals.

New orders for 35 DTBird&DTBat units

We have filed orders for 35 units of the models DTBirdV4D4, DTBirdV4D8, DTBirdV8D10, DTBirdN2 (Night Detection model) and DTBatD3, to be installed in France, Greece, the Netherlands and Spain.

DTBird software upgrade released

DTBird has released a software upgrade for both new and existing units. The software upgrade includes the following features:

Real-time flight uploads. Now the flights are uploaded to DTBird Data Analysis Platforms (DAP) just after the end of the flights, so videos with sound and data can be available within seconds (depending on the Internet bandwidth).

Added new funtionality for thermal image analysis, DTBird Night Detection models.

Updated software for DTBirdV8 model, including 8 cameras recording simultaneously uploading it at real-time to the DAP.

Improved DTBird Automatic Control System with new automatic failure-correcting protocols.
